Why Study Creative Writing at MMC?
As the great New Yorker James Baldwin put it, “You write in order to change the world.” At MMC, you will hone your style, take artistic risks, and push past the limits of your imagination to build new realities—on the page and in your community. Located in the publishing capital of the United States, our program offers students access to world-class literary institutions, readings, launches, book festivals, and publishing networking opportunities. Our workshop-based curriculum will sharpen your skills in a supportive community of dedicated faculty and passionate fellow students. You’ll also gain hands-on professional publishing experience and learn what it takes to get a piece from submission to publication by working on the editorial team of our literary magazine, The Carson Review!
The Carson Review
The mark of a thriving undergraduate creative writing program is in the eminence of its student literary magazine: The Carson Review is Marymount Manhattan College’s creative writing journal, published once a year in the spring.
